Don’t Feed the Pigeons is the story about 3 people trying to find love and themselves in London.
Mona and Alex are best friends and share a flat that the call the ‘Hippie House’, due to the large tree growing in their kitchen. As well as their carefree lifestyle they keep. Mona is a Swedish troll that also works as a nurse, whilst Alex is a green man and ‘proper Londoner’ that work as a cashier in the local bank.
Gary is a divorced werewolf somewhere from East Europe. No one is really sure from exactly where, including Gary.

He only visits Alex when he’s drunk or high, giving him bad advice and being generally awful.
